Microlite74 is “Finished”

With the release of Ancient Auguries today, I’m happy to announce that the Microlite74 project is essentially finished. At least it is on my end. While I’m sure there will be another typo correction release late this year and I will be happy to plug or even host your M74-based projects, the game is finished.

Really. With Microlite74 Version 2.0, I have Microlite74 about as close as I can get it to that 1974 edition of the world’s most popular fantasy RPG and still be Microlite20-based. The supplement I released today adds a number of completely optional rules — some pleasing to old school gamers and some that will please 3.x fans — and shows just how easy M74 is to modify to fix any problems you or your group might have with the game. There’s no need for a constant stream of upgrades and new editions from me. In addition to the typo correction update mentioned above, I’ll probably update the information on retro-clone is the back once or twice as year so that it stays current and useful to new players, but those will be new “printings” — not new editions.

Microlite74 is YOUR game now. I can’t wait to hear and see what you do with it. Have a blast with it!

    I think you have the wrong link to the “booklet” version on the page – it seems to be the same as the “standard pdf”. Other than that, great job! I look forward to trying this out with my group.

    Both of the 2.0 Booklet links on the Microlite74 page (the one in the right sidebar and the one in the list of downloads at the bottom of the page) are taking me to the booklet on Mediafire. If this isn’t working for you, you should be able to download the booklet version from Lulu.

  3. The Ancient Auguries header says “Mircolite” rather than “Microlite.” Might want to fix that in 2.01.

    Thanks for pointing that out. I’ll upload a correction over the weekend. I will not bump the version number or anything, but I think I really need to correct that.
